Cor : The Silver Soap. A Skincare Review
You know when you find a product that you just have to tell every body about?
This is that product. Meet The Silver Soap from Cor.
This is truly unlike any skincare product that I have used.
Don't think of it as another facial soap -
Think of it as a former tube of creamy foaming cleanser which has been dehydrated.
The starting point of Cor’s skincare line is the patented formula of Nano-Silver with Silica Compound. Silver has long been known as one of the best natural anti-bacterial agents. It blocks the bacteria’s ability to transfer oxygen through its cell walls. Silica prepares the skin to accept the ingredients of Cor. The sponge-like nature of Silica draws the ingredients into its particles to richly nourish the skin and get to the core of your problematic issues.
Silver and silica?! This sounds harsh. I am already mentally preparing for a tight, squeeky-clean face. *shrugs shoulders* You know me, I love skincare and I will try just about anything so let's give this a go.
Here are the simple steps:
•Splash water on your hands and face.
•Then take the soap between your hands and rub for about 5 seconds until you have some bubbles on your hands.
•Set the bar of soap down and continue to rub your hands together until a nice, creamy foam has formed and then apply the foam to your face.
•Gently rub in a circular motion with your fingertips to remove dry and dead skin and leave on for about two minutes. This is a good time to brush your teeth.
•Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. Follow with serum and moisturizer. It is advised that you skip your toner or you will strip away the lovely sericin.
Yep, sounds like the proper application of soap. But it's more than that. The magic happens as you work this cleanser over your skin. It will remove makeup, eliminating the need of a separate facial makeup remover, saving time and money. For the past 8 months I have been removing my makeup with wipes. Bye bye wipes. For me, it has evened out my skin tone by near ridding my cheeks of rosacea and after 3 weeks I am starting to see a reduction in the appearance of my sun damage. Even my pores look tighter. Is it a coincidence that the travel size, pictured below, is shaped like a Magic 8 ball? I think not.
Sericin is a natural, soluble protein made from silk. Highly moisture-binding and film-forming, sericin imparts a unique and highly aesthetic skin feel. Sericin has film forming abilities that have been shown to protect the skin against the harsh effects of the sun. [I want to note there is no detectable 'film' left on your skin.]
Apply this soap to your hands first, not directly to your face or Clarisonic. Use your Clarisonic after the foam is on your face. If you use your Clarisonic, do not let the soap sit an additional 2 minutes. The 2 minutes your Clarisonic take to cycle, is enough. If it is too drying especially during the Winter, use it once a day or every other day. Do not let this soap sit in water when you are finished. The soap came wrapped in a little bag, I saved that bag, flattened it and used it as a makeshift tray, holding the soap while not in use.
